“Hey Baltimore, get over it!”
Bet you’ve heard that one when the subject of the Colts midnight move to Indianapolis back in March of 1984 is brought up, right?
GET OVER IT!
Gee thanks there Dan Marino and all of the national media folks who don’t get it. They don’t or can’t feel Baltimore’s pain yet they languished over Art Modell’s act of desperation when he moved the Browns to Baltimore. They panned one of the NFL’s pioneering spirits yet casually dismiss the fact that a drunken fool like Robert Irsay who publicly denied his own heritage, ripped away a huge part of Baltimore’s.
There’s isn’t much or anything that can be done about it today and most Baltimoreans I believe recognize this. But we all would just like the atrocity to be AT LEAST as nationally scorned as Modell’s move was. Those colors and horseshoes and that name belong in Baltimore. Yet it will never happen.
Some of you may never get over it.
Personally I have gotten over “it” for the most part. Sure, there’s a little twinge of resentment there and even though I knew it was in the Ravens’ best interest to have the Colts win on Saturday to give our city a chance to host the AFC Championship, my body language still suggested that I was pulling for the Chiefs.
No one likes being dumped.
Has the new girl in purple eased your pain or are you still feeling scorned Baltimore?
